The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-earth II

BFME2 brings the PC experience to the Xbox 360 in near perfect form

The PC has generally been home to Real-Time Strategy titles, but EALA has done a superb job in recreating the RTS genre on a console platform. If you take a few missions to get used to the control scheme, you'll be able to do anything a PC gamer can do with minimal effort. The single player campaign offers good and evil sides, so you can conquer the lands or purge them of evil. However, online multiplayer over Xbox Live is where the game truly shines with five different modes of play. The graphics are slightly lacking for Xbox 360 titles, and the story takes a back seat to the exceptional gameplay, but overall BFME2 is a worthy purchase on Xbox 360.
